Help Bishop end Hot Car Deaths

My name is Bishop and my goal is to make sure kids in cars are as safe as possible. When a baby in my neighborhood passed away from a heatstroke in 2016, I knew that I wanted to do anything I could to stop that from happening again. That’s when I came up with the idea for Oasis.

Oasis is a child heatstroke prevention device that I received a patent for this April.  If a child is left in a hot car, the device uses a fan system to cool the child and the car. While that happens, the device sends an alert to the parents and alerts authorities if the parents don’t react. You can hear more about Oasis, my ideas, and my plans in my Tedx Talk here .

Now that the Oasis has been fully dreamed up, it’s time to bring the final product to life. So far all the prototypes of my device have been handmade in my garage, but I’m ready for the next steps. The ultimate goal of this phase is to have a functional prototype to help with getting Oasis manufactured.

I’ve been working with Kickr Design , a company that helps inventors build their products and connects  them with manufacturers to bring products to market. This process is very expensive but very important. Kickr and I have come up with a plan for the amount of time each next step will take:

Project Breakdown
• Project Planning: 8-10 hours
• Brainstorming and Ideation: 5-7 hours
• Mechanical Design: 12-14 hours
• Electrical Design: 15-18 hours
• Testing: 32-38 hours
• Software Programming: 68-72 hours
• Design Reviews: 10-12 hours
• Assembly and Adjustment: TBD

The time it takes for these next steps is dependent upon funding because the company that will be helping is paid by the hour. This is where you come in. Your donations will go directly towards the creation of Oasis. You can help play a role in saving a child’s life.

I appreciate your thoughts, prayers, or donations to help me with this next phase of my mission to end child hot car deaths. My ultimate goal is to get these manufactured and put in stores and save at least one life. If I can save more, that would be great!


Money raised on my campaign will be withdrawn by my mother, Tenia Curry, who is helping manage the finances regarding Oasis.

Milestone update. Bishop is finalizing Oasis with his engineering team at Kickr Design and will pick up the finished product next week. Baby Jogger recently requested that he submit his patent to their research department. We are hopeful that Baby Jogger or another car seat company decides to implement his technology into their car seats. Bishop is so thankful for all of your support and is still determined to end hot car deaths.

Our family is overwhelmed by the support that we have received. GoFund has helped us complete the first phase of getting Oasis on the market, which was provisional patent, final patent, and lawyer fees. With the support of our previous campaign and the current one, we are able to hire an engineering firm to help refine the concept with industrial design and test and build a working prototype. We have increased our goal to $30,000 so we can begin the 3rd phase of pilot production, pay for an international patent, trademarks, marketing expenses, confidentiality and licensing agreements. Again, we are so grateful for all of the support from GoFundMe and each of our donors.
